should defend israel and the court of world preponderance, whether it is in the u.n. or other international forums and insist that the real story come out. it is hamas that has been on the offensive. israel has practiced so much patience and reluctance to go into gaza, until these rockets, as you have indicated, have come into jerusalem and the escalation with rockets coming into tel aviv and other population centers there. we have an obligation. the president has an obligation, thus far, the white house has acted in a way that i believe the israelis can see that america stands by us. certainly, in the past, last couple of years, there has been a questions in my mind about whether where the president and the white house stand as far as the u.s./israel relationship. i am glad to see what they have said this week. i hope it holds. >> greta: talking about a -- i don't know if that gets us clocloser to a solution. i don't pretend to know the solution. but i see that egypt -- president morsi has -- has gotten involved. i see this getting more complicated, an already complicated sit

intelligence says he was responsible for watering down -- editing, the talking points that u.n. embassador susan rice used when she went on five sunday talk shows, the famous picture of it, to talk about benghazi but you say a few days before the -- his office said they were responsible for editorring talking points, in a closed door hearing, james clapper told you and other senators he didn't know who was responsible. where does this investigation stand and how do you get to the bottom of it? >> well, it's like any other -- it's assumed the proportions of any other major scandal. there are many layers onion. all kinds of questions raised. i saw the director of national intelligence say he didn't know where these talking points were edited. and now he's saying he did. we'll be interested how that transpired. the biggest aspect of this whole thing is it's got to be looked into, why there was such a failure on the part of the administration in light of events the two attacks on our embassy, the assassination attempt on the british embassador, they closed their -- all this long train of event

is in carnegie, pennsylvania. hi, patrick. caller: happy thanksgiving. i am profoundly un-optimistic about the state of our economy and their future. when i read about the entire presbyterian church, the methodist church, the evangelical lutheran church wanting to end all relationships with the state of israel, i think our country -- we are literally being occupied by a foreign government by the state of israel. i have to tell you, when you look at the economic apartheid on wall street where the american people are treading on one platform while the zionist regime in control of our country is trading, we are becoming a nation that is completely and utterly occupied. host: that was patrick from pennsylvania. hi, judy. caller: hi. i just want to say that my husband dave and i are very optimistic about the future. we are happy that the president won. our concern -- your last caller was talking about religion and the churches. we don't see why they should be playing a part in our government and big we are concerned about the separation of church and state. we are also concerned about the racia
. democrats say this explains why u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice said after the attack that it was a mob protesting and anti-muslim video and not a terror strike but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to downplay terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified memo to the point it was changed to the sunday morning talk shows there is a gap we need to account for and understand why it was changed. >> all the intelligence community have told us that initially they recognize there were terrorists involved but they thought it came from the protests, that it took time to sort that out. >> molly: c.i.a. talking points would have gone through numerous hands, various intelligence agencies, white house, state department, justice department before going out to lawmakers. >> gregg: so nobody is terribly forthcoming about who did it. molly henneberg, thanks very much. >> heather: illegal immigration a hot button issue and today we understand that republican lawmakers are now working on
and the president did it in front of the u.n. the fact of the matter is they did change the talking points, video ya his own speech after this horrific murder of our four americans. >> why would the fact it was a terrorist attack be redacted? why would that be classified information when it was immediately apparent that it was? >> i don't know. i wish i didn't have to say that because there was an eyewitness account the 24 hours that said there was an organizationer organized jihadist in the crowd. i learned when i was working in intelligence and the navy's anti-terrorism unit rarely do you find a one-armed intelligence officer. they are always saying on whaund but on the other hand and as the paper left the cia, that general petraeus said or allegedly now in a classified hearing that there were organized terrorists involved in the attack and why it was changed, it is too easy to leap to where it was changed in the white house to maybe there were other types of information that maybe had good reason why it was changed and that's why you have an investigation before you leap to an asrgs it was done f
the arab world against israel. >> let me tell you something about the arab world, gregg. i served at the u.n. for six years and i was there during the second world war, and i cannot even start telling you the number of prime ministers, kings and sultans from the arab world and said, go, finish the job, don't stop. there is no sympathy in the arab world for hamas. hamas is supported by iran. the only ones that want to see them survive and prevail is the iranians. they would celebrate if hamas was gone. gregg: i spent a lot of time in the west bank and down in gas aeu met with terrorist, i met with families of homicide bombers. one distinct impression i walked away with, for every terrorist there are ten willing to fill his or her shoes. again i ask the question, can hamas really be stamped out. >> you've been to the west bank and gaza and you see the difference. the west bank is thriving, the cities have great economies, great safety and security. and i believe at the end of the day that most palestinians want to live like that. they don't want to live in this world's largest prison hamas has
going forward, rick. rick: conor powell live on the ground in jerusalem, thanks. heather: well, u.n. ambassador susan rice defending those early comments on the benghazi terror attacks just days after the raid on the u.s. consulate. ambassador rice went on five sunday talk shows and said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous to protest over an anti-muslim film. and now she says those remarks were based on the intelligence she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. heather: national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live from washington with the latest. hi, jennifer. >> reporter: hi, heather. well, essentially, she came out now was it's increasingly -- because it's increasingly clear that the president wants to nominate her to be his next secretary of state despite strong objections from senators such as john mccain. >> i have
, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organization. the question is though, when did he reach that final conclusion? did he know that before susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations went on those five sunday shows and insisted what happened in benghazi was the result of spontaneous anger from that anti-muslim video? >> all the i can tell you, wolf, is this source says the intelligence reports that came in blaming the video, those 20 or so reports, this source says petraeus had those reports disproved over time after he testified or rather
